We are excited to announce that we now have almost doubled our therapy room availability in Hull. With the addition of our new centre on Beverley Road, we now have a total of eleven therapy rooms, including a brand-new specialist children’s therapy room.
Our established Holderness Road centre has six therapy rooms to hire of varying sizes. Our new Beverley Road centre has four general therapy rooms for two to four people, and also a four-person children’s therapy room which is equipped with sand trays and toys for those therapists working with children and young people.
We welcome enquiries about hiring from talking therapists in the Hull and East Yorkshire area. As a mental health services training centre, our main area of expertise is psychotherapy and psychotherapeutic counselling, but our rooms are suitable for any kind of talking therapy.
The rooms are all equipped with chairs and sofas and have been kitted out for covid safety. We are proud of our rooms which are practical for therapy yet have a homely feel
Therapy rooms on Beverley Road, Hull
Our new Beverley Road centre has four general therapy rooms to hire, a specialist children’s therapy room and a group room for group work up to 10 people (covid regulations permitting). We have two kitchens for use by therapists with tea and coffee making facilities, a fridge and a microwave. We have separate toilets for male and female staff and therapists, and also an accessible toilet on the ground floor for clients.
There is free car parking for therapists and visitors to the rear and the disabled access is to the front of the building. The centre is opposite Beverley Road baths and is well served by public transport – there is a bus stop pretty much outside our gate!
We have WiFi throughout the building and some of the rooms are hard wired. You can borrow a lead from the office if you want to bring your laptop.
The centre is on a self-serve basis though there is someone around, either in the centre or on the phone, during office hours.
The therapy rooms are on the first floor. There is a lift for those with mobility issues. Our rooms are all named after heroes of Hull.
First floor therapy rooms
The Beaumont room, our specialist children’s therapy room can sit up to four people and contains more child-centric resources including sand trays and toys.
The Ferens room is our biggest general therapy room and can seat four people.
The Holtby room seats up to three people though is better with two people to help with social distancing during covid
The Pickering room is for two people
The Wilberforce room is for two people and is recommended for use by those who have mobility issues as it’s the closest to the lift.
The Johnson room is on the ground floor and is suitable for group therapy sessions. This room is booked in four-hour slots, from 9am to 1pm, or from 1pm to 5pm at £50 per four-hour session. For those clients with severe mobility issues or extra-large wheelchairs, the Johnson room can be used by arrangement instead of a first-floor room. You must contact the Ellesmere Centre team to book this. It is the therapist’s responsibility to check for any accessibility needs on booking in the client as last-minute room swaps may not always be possible.
Therapy rooms on Holderness Road, Hull
Our centre on Holderness Road has been operating as a therapy centre with rooms to hire for 15 years. It’s in a relatively quiet spot at the top of Ellesmere Avenue, close to the junction with Ings Road. There are frequent bus services up and down the length of Holderness Road, and we have a small car park to the rear
Here, we have five first floor rooms, and one ground floor training room which can be utilised for sessions with clients with mobility issues. WiFi is available to all.
Room 1 is the ground floor training room which is also used for clients with accessibility needs. It can be booked in advance. It is used for training on weekends and selected weekdays.
Room 2 is suitable for two people.
Room 3 is our largest first-floor therapy room and can seat up to six people (covid regulations permitting).
Room 4 is also quite large and is suitable for up to four people
Room 5 is good for two or three people
Room 6 is our smallest therapy room suitable for two people or for individual work
All room hire includes access to tea and coffee making facilities in the kitchen, with a fridge and a microwave. Toilets are available on both the ground floor and the first floor. Again, there is usually someone about during office hours, but the centre is self-service for private therapists.
How to book a therapy room at The Ellesmere Centre, Hull
All rooms are now available to book on our online booking system. Please contact the office on firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more, and to request a room hire application form. We will need to see evidence of your insurance; in particular public liability, and we may also need to take references.

The Hub – hotdesk space and community for therapists
At our Beverley Road centre, we also have The Hub. This is a four-desk space which is available for use by private therapists. For £150 + vat per month, private therapists can access any of the four hotdesks during office hours (or out of hours by arrangement), have post received and forwarded, access the communal facilities, and get a 30% discount on all therapy room bookings.
If you’re looking for a welcoming community where you can see clients, meet other therapists, and have use of a shared office for a good price, then please do come and take a look at The Hub. We would love to welcome you as part of our community of professional therapists and counsellors.
We are looking forward to welcoming you to our therapist community in Hull. Please do get in touch if you’d like to find out more and arrange a look around any of our centres and The Hub.
